The journey begins

  1. I recently started a CNA program at a school in my area. After talking to a lot of friends, and reading a lot of posts on this website, I decided to become a CNA before entering nursing school. My ultimate goal is to become a Nurse Practitioner, but for now I'm starting from the very beginning. I'm a male, and I happen to be the only male in my class. It's sort of scary. Does anyone have any tips about training? I'd really like to get as much information as I can. I haven't been able to find much about what it's like to be a male nurse, and I'm hoping to find that here. I've bugged my grandmother and fiancee, both of which are former CNAs, and I'm pretty sure I've reached their limit.
